I bought a Tom Tom Runner Cardio and now I must start swimming trying to heal myself from an injury. I have read the instructions of the watch and it says that is possible to swimm with it.
Which steps my I follow? There is no option for swimm in my menu, just the treadmill.
Thanks for your help.

    Hi Sferrer,

    Welcome to the Community!

    Your watch is designed for running and is not water proof so we do not recommend to swim with it or let it become wet. You can run in rain with it, but it cannot be submerged in water.

    As your watch is our first generation Sports watches and we've since released two generations of products, you might consider upgrading to one our latest models. Our Running and Outdoor watches now all support also swimming. For more information and a loyalty discount, please contact our Customer Service.

    Cheers, Mikko

    Hi, Mikkok, thank's for your answer.
    I'm quite surprised of it, I read it on the manual I downloaded from the official website of Tom Tom.
    http://download.tomtom.com/open/manuals/Runner_Multi-Sport/index.htm
    "Settings for Swimming activities
    Note: TomTom Runner Cardio and TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio are water-resistant. You can swim with these watches. However, the built-in Heart Rate Monitor does not work under water.
    Before you start a swimming activity, you should check two settings:
     The Pool size setting for the pool in which you are swimming. This setting is the length of the pool in meters or yards.
    17"
    Well, perhaps it is a misunderstanding, but I thing it's already clear...

    Thanks again.

    You have a Runner watch so it does not support swimming at all, regardless of waterproofing. That section of the manual is really referring just to the MultiSport, which has a swimming mode. The Runner is for running exclusively.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

    Well, I have copied it from the manual, and it's absolutely clear.
    If it is wrong, well, this things happen, but don't try to say that is referred just to multisport.
    Thanks again.

    i am not saying you are wrong, I am saying the manual is wrong. It should say that swimming just refers to the MultiSport. They likely just produced one manual for both watches and overlooked this.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
